The unidentified man shot eight people near a gated pool area at the La Jolla Crossroads complex in San Diego at around 6 p.m. local time, the department said.

A police helicopter arrived at the scene first and the pilot reported seeing multiple victims and that the suspect, Peter Selis, was still in the pool area and appeared to be reloading. When the suspect pointed his gun at the officers, they fired, killing him. One of apparent victims was crawling to the other trying to help.

One man who attended the gathering said the suspect was sitting in a chair at the pool.

Police say there is no further threat, but advise people to shelter in place.

Police were asking witnesses to remain at the scene. When he invited the suspect to join the celebration, the suspect lifted up his shirt, took out the gun and shot him in the stomach.

It's not clear whether Selis, who was a white man, knew any of the victims, police said.

The La Jolla Crossroads apartments are located near the northernmost edge of San Diego, near the University of California campus. "We were tapping on windows to tell people that there was an active shooter and they should get away from the street". "The suspect looked pretty relaxed, pretty relaxed" the witness, who did not identify himself, told FOX 5. Berry said these things aren't a common sight at the complex, which college students, physicians and military families, among others, call home.

When they heard more gunshots the man said they ran into the clubhouse to hide.

An investigation has been lauched by the San Diego police, and officers will provide additional information as it becomes available.
